ABOUT THE ARTIST – (click on picture to enlarge it)
Born in Elizabeth NJ in 1940, Nancy Hagin graduated with a B.F.A. Degree from Carnegie-Mellon University in 1962. She then Received her M.F.A. from Yale University in 1964. Her extensive background in teaching, art and fashion has led her into a double life.
Each year in May, she leaves her New York City loft, and her students at Cooper Union
and Fashion Institute of Technology and heads for her rambling country house in upstate New York. There, for six months, she indulges in her love of watercolor, creating a cornucopia of still lifes based upon old crocks, quilts, pitchers and other antiques she collects. As the sugar maples begin to blaze orange and red, she interrupts her idyllic lifestyle for short weekly visits to the city to teach.
When the trees are bare, it’s time to pack up and return to the city to a stimulating six-month interlude of teaching, visiting museums and most of all — painting. During this time Hagin works exclusively in acrylic, exploring the light that filters through her city studio windows and its reflections on sills, plants and everyday objects.
Hagin has exhibited in many group and one woman shows. She has received numerous awards, and is represented in public, private and corporate collections throughout the nation.
As written by critic John Arthur:
“There is a willingness to steer away from the artist’s persona and direct attention instead toward the congeniality of her assorted objects. That is most refreshing in this period marked by works of rampant self-absorption and tepid ironies”.
Her accomplishments and extensive detailed information these things are well documented through numerous publications.
